TIGER Woods, playing in his first Ryder Cup since 2012, will be the star attraction in Friday’s fourballs as holders the United States attempt to end a 25-year drought on European soil.
Over 60,000 fans are expected to flock to Le Golf National, just outside Paris, for the first Ryder Cup held in France, where 14-time major champion Woods received a prolonged, rousing reception at the opening ceremony.
He will partner the talented, yet brash Patrick Reed in the anchor match of the opening session, which begins with an intriguing matchup pitting Justin Rose and Jon Rahm against Brooks Koepka and Tony Finau.
